Esferic - Where it All Began

The Esferic Barcelona event venue is hidden away in the oasis-like Montjuic Park, the hill which overlooks the city with its historical castle that was built in 1640 and formerly served as a military fortress and a prison. The Esferic is situated in between the Joan Brossa Gardens the Mossèn Jacinto Verdaguer Gardens, surrounded by lush, green grass and tall trees, making for natural privacy and protection for events hosted on the premise. What's more, the venue is located just 10 minutes away from the Fira, 15 minutes from downtown Barcelona, as well as 15 minutes from the Barcelona El Prat Airport.

Montjuic Park has an extensive cultural impression on Barcelona, such as some of the best panoramic view points of the city which can be visited by taking the funicular up to the top. Not to mention, this is the home of the 1992 Olympic Games, which is accredited for making Barcelona the world-renowned city that it is today. In addition to the Joan Brossa and Mossèn Jacinto Verdaguer Gardens, one can also discover The Grec Garden inspired by its Ancient Greek-inspired amphitheatre carved out of rock, The Laribal Garden, inspired by the Generalife Gardens near Granada, and the Cactus Garden, formally known as the Mossèn Costa i Llobera Garden. This area makes for a green paradise to host the perfect outdoor event in Barcelona.

To be able to further understand the historical importance of the Esferic Barcelona, let's look at the timeline of this event venue:

  • 1929 - built as the Science Pavilion for the International Exhibition of Barcelona.
  • 1960’s - it was Damm’s old brewery and it was part of the Montjuïc amusement park, that closed in 1998.
  • 2003 - The amusement park of Montjuïc was transformed into the Joan Brossa gardens, opened in 2003, and this building was one of the few that were preserved.
  • 2004 - the project of restoration, extension and improvement began by the architect Joaquim Matutano Ros, and the work ended in 2008.

Today, Esferic features original architecture characteristics that help to provide form and definition to the building, while at the same time giving new life to the event space with modern installations and equipment.

The Brossa Room is a great space for welcome drinks, or even a pre-dinner cocktail to encourage guests to chat and begin mingling before their meal. Located on the ground floor and with a round composition of 12 columns in a V-shape in the middle, the Brossa Room is a heterogeneous zone with original decoration. Half of the room is composed of glass windows while the other half is made of white walls, the combination leaves guests in good spirits, enjoying the iconic design and distribution.

This space within the Esferic makes for a memorable welcome area for attendees to enjoy a delicious cocktail, to develop workshops, or even to host product presentations.

The roof sports Catalan vaults, a famous ceiling architectural structure, and a dome, which stands out as an emblematic element of the building. The combination of the glass offering 360 degrees coverage of the entire room with the dome at the top makes for a brilliant naturally-lit venue. What's more, during night events, guests can stargaze and enjoy the moonlight flooding in to light up the room.

There are all kinds of technical amenities to set-up and connect AV materials. It’s a versatile room with multiple possibilities of use, such as a gala dinner, a meeting, a product presentation or a celebration such as a wedding or anniversary party.

Best of all, the Vidreres opens up to a breathtaking private terrace, making an ideal outdoor Barcelona venue space. Should there be an inclement weather forecast on the date of an event, Esferic can cover the terrace entirely!
